Days 3 & 4-London Calling #TakePart2012

Once you arrive in London you can’t help but notice that there is absolutely no store or company not selling something with the Union Jack Flag on it.  And I am not talking about cheap souvenir staff, I’m talking about really great products of any kind.

If you are here, do make an effort to treat yourself to something as all those products are limited edition and were produced only to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics.

When you have spent a couple of days in London, you will start noticing people going around carrying boards full of pins and asking you if you wanna trade pins with them.  Pin trading during Olympic Games is not anything new but Samsung seems to have taken it to a new level!

People of all ages and nationalities are visiting the four Samsung mobile Pins and 8 Galaxy Studios in London trying to collect 49 pins Samsung is giving away to them after they are asked to go through some Olympic related challenge ( like answer a question or play a game on Galaxy SIII or simply draw something on a Galaxy Note.  In case you wonder why everyone is trying to collect these pins the answer is simple…Samsung is giving 100 Galaxy SIII’s to the first 100 people to collect all 49 pins and anyone who completes the pin board with all 49 badges before 12th August will be entered into a prize draw to win a Global Travel Ticket to exciting destinations!

So if you happen to be in London, don’t forget to stop by the 4 Samsung Mobile Pins  which can be found at:
